Getting your child involved in a summer reading program is important! Studies have shown that children who participate in summer reading programs develop better literacy skills. We want your children to retain all the success they have achieved during the year and have FUN in the summer. Our science and art-based summer reading program is geared towards children from ages 5 to 13 years old. If your child is a little younger or older than this range, please join in if you wish.

To register your child, please complete this Registration Form and drop off at Botelle School or at the Library. There are extra forms at the Library if you prefer to pick one up.

After registration, each child will be given an adventure map, stickers, and a set of challenges to complete. Prizes will be given to every child who registers and completes 12 or more challenges. Prizes will be on display in the Children’s Room so children can select their top four choices. Prizes can be picked up beginning August 5. And be sure to come to our Meandering Monday programs. It’s a great time to check out books!

Any questions? Please email Miss Eileen at
